Creativity in a Time of Covid

The latest edition of Holles Connect magazine should be landing on your door mat any day now. It has a special focus on creativity at LEH and how it has flourished during lockdown.

It reveals how teachers have managed to encourage and inspire pupils by bringing them together, even while apart, with music and art. There’s also a feature about how imagination plays a vital role, even in STEM subjects.

Plus the news section explains how the pandemic has catapulted two of our alumnae into the headlines, with Melanie Ivarsson taking a lead on developing one of the very first Covid-19 vaccines and Daisy Fancourt advising the government about the impact the virus has had on our mental wellbeing.

Meanwhile there are profiles of five of our alumnae, who now all work in the creative industries.  They also discuss how they overcame the challenges posed by the pandemic. They are cellist Joy Lisney, opera singer Becca Madden, portrait artist Annie Lee, actor Poppy Gilbert and debut writer Aisling Fowler.

If you can’t wait for the printed version of the magazine, you can access the flipbook here: http://bit.ly/HollesConnectSpring2021
